How to stop at all any syncing on new MacBook with another devices with same Apple ID? I want to use Apple ID on MacBook only for App Store.


Syncing happens in the system settings, iCloud. If you sign out there, you stop syncing.

You can stay signed in to the App Store and not sign in to iCloud as well, just skip the full setup when you set up your account - choose set up later if you are asked if you want to sync iCloud.

  • Does ‘Find My Mac’ service is will be disabled in this case? I ask like just iPhone user, have no experience to use MacOS. – Vyacheslav May 23 '20 at 11:04

    Yes @Obelix - signing out of iCloud entirely removes find my. Also, once you disable everything - you can be very granular if you sign in again. You can choose to enable only the one or several classes you wish. – bmike May 23 '20 at 11:27
